Furniture Makers Company.
The Furniture Makers’ Company, Austin Friar, produce an annual yearbook to showcase the industry’s talent, awards, and latest developments. This substantial 92 page yearbook provides the perfect means for the charity to truly celebrate the wide range of talent within their industry.
It was clear from the start of this project that the finely crafted furniture should be the main focus of the design. We therefore set about creating a layout which allowed for images to extend from edge to edge across two pages, while still being versatile enough to be able to accommodate photographs of bespoke pieces of furniture, taken in different orientations, allowing every detail to be highlighted from every angle – the kind of design challenge our team relish! The written text is organised neatly in the lower third of the page, allowing the imagery to take centre stage. The design and production of the yearbook itself beautifully reflects the same aesthetic as the expertly crafted objects within.

We've worked with Anthony and the team on a number of design jobs - ranging from small leaflets to the production of our 96 page yearbook. I've found them to be incredibly professional, great at taking direction but also forthcoming with creative suggestions, and always delivering on time.George CooperMarketing and Communications Manager, Furniture Makers Company
